As you enter 491 Old Beach Rd. through the custom mahogany front door framed by majestic 25' Canary Island Date palms, the 1st floor offers a split floor plan with the gulf-front Master Suite on the left and 3BRs/2BAs to the right. These are separated by a gulf-front sitting area featuring morning kitchen/wet bar/Uline mini-fridge with ice maker - a cozy retreat perfect for enjoying morning coffee, a good book, or an evening cocktail. Two French doors in the sitting area lead to the 1st floor gulf-front, wrap-around deck where natural vegetation provides privacy for the built-in hammock, outdoor hot/cold shower, locking storage for the beach toys and additional storage available under the house for larger items. Your private walkover leads to some of the widest, most beautiful beaches on the quiet west end of 30A, with lifeguards stationed close by for your safety and peace of mind. This property is over one-half acre with 61' of gulf-frontage, and the home is strategically located landward of the CCCL in flood zone X. As you ascend the grand staircase with iron railings to reach the open living space on the 2nd floor, you get your first glimpse of the amazing cypress-clad ceiling beams and panoramic gulf-views that make this property exceptional. The custom design/build firm of Pendleton+Bowman perfectly positioned the house facing west to offer gulf views from all living spaces as well as the Master Suite. The professional-grade kitchen is reminiscent of Italy, featuring architectural grade custom beech wood cabinetry to a height of 11' with panels and doors to conceal refrigerators and dishwashers so they blend into the decor, and a fabulous 17-foot mahogany island topped with Jerusalem Limestone and stone apron sink. Everything for the chefs in your family, including Viking Professional dual-oven with 6 gas-burner stove and grill, custom millwork vent hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator with bottom freezer and two additional refrigerator drawers in the island, full size Bosch dishwasher and an energy saving Fisher&Paykel dishwasher drawer, inlay vegetable sink with disposal, Uline ice maker, and Sub-Zero wine cooler. The gulf-view breakfast nook off the kitchen features custom built-in china cabinet with beaded glass. Bathed in natural light, the LR/Library/Study/Game spaces are combined to create a modern, open feeling - featuring a gas fireplace with mahogany mantle/surround, built-in shelving, and floor-to-ceiling wall of windows. Behind the kitchen is the 2nd floor guest/nanny suite with 2BRs/1BA and the spacious laundry room with gulf-views, built-in cabinets and utility sink. You won't find another home like this on 30A - natural warmth with over 1,100 sq ft of wrap-around decks. Back on the 1st floor, you enter the MBR through double doors and take in views of the gulf/palm trees through wall of floor-to-ceiling windows on the south side. MBA features a walk-in closet, BainUltra whirlpool bathtub, separate shower with bench, rainwater and hand-held shower heads, double Twyford basins imported from England, and limestone vanity tops. BR2 has double doors opposite the sitting area and features gulf-views, en suite bath with shower, built-in queen bed loft above the queen bed, built-in bench with storage AND a secret passage (small doorway) to allow children to pass between the BRs during their slumber parties.
